In brief: Rest stretch, repeat
Achilles tendinitis is best treated by rest from aggravating activities, use of a layered heel lift, and stretching exercises combined with anti inflammatories.
The treatment will not result in relief quickly. The regimen should be religiously followed for the first 6 weeks, and repeated until symptoms are diminished!

In brief: Rest
Rest, ice, compression, elevation and limited use.
Avoid running and jumping activities. In some cases a steroid injection may be performed, but may increase the chance of achilles rupture if not done properly.
